In observation of National Home Care Month this November, State Representative Barbara Sears (R-Monclova Twp.) shadowed field nurses at Heritage Health Care to observe the challenges they face and to help enhance vital services for vulnerable Ohioans.

"It was wonderful to have the opportunity to visit with a client of Heritage Home Healthcare,” Sears said. “Home-based health services provide not only a preferred way of receiving care, but also a more affordable way of receiving care. It's comforting to know that our community has resources like this available while we make important transitions in health care."

Home care allows thousands of Ohioans—including medically fragile patients, mentally handicapped patients, senior citizens, and many other children and adults—to remain with their families in the comfort of their homes. With the help of professionally trained health care staff, home care offers dignity and independence as well as vital health services.

“Home health care allows patients of all ages to be cared for in the comfort of their own home, regardless of their medical condition, so that they may be close to their loved ones,” said David Walsh, CEO at Heritage Health Care. “During this month and every month, we honor our patients and recognize the staff for their significant commitment to care for those patients.”

Heritage Health Care is a member of the Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice and is a northwest Ohio-based and locally owned home health organization that offers a full range of home care services to 60 counties in the state of Ohio.
